A United Nations organization for gender equality and empowerment of women said it would not collaborate with online taxi service Uber Technologies Inc.

Uber said last week that it would partner with UN Women to create 1 million jobs for women as Uber drivers by 2020.

Last week, Uber had released a statement that read, "Today, UN Women and Uber are launching a partnership to work together around the world toward a shared vision of equality and women's empowerment. We intend to invest in long-term programs in local communities where we live and work, as Uber commits to creating 1,000,000 jobs for women globally on the Uber platform by 2020."

"UN Women will not accept an offer to collaborate in job creation with Uber", Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said in a YouTube video uploaded by trade union federation Public Services International on Wednesday.

Uber was not immediately available to comment.
